a quick two seconds on that? >> sure, what president obama as a candidate ran against president bush's first term. what he didn't fully realize is president bush by the time he left office modified the counterterrorism policies that were controversial so when he took over, he agreed with a lot of things he inherit. not everything. but a lot of what he took over from president bush he kept in place. >> one is john brennan, he kept president bush's pick for national counter-terrorist center director, john brennan. talk about what you heard him speak about drones. he said they're conducted, the drone strikes, conducted in full compliance with the law. any surprise at -- from you, you watched this stuff, as the frequency of the drone attacks. >> it's interesting. drone attacks started in earnest in president bush's last year. president obama took over and found they were a useful instrument on the war on terror and accelerated them during the last four years whether they're legal is one of the questions that administration has been struggling to answer publicly. they have not engaged as
